Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor
Key Text: Ecclesiastes 2:1-11
What if you could make your most outlandish dreams come true? …a waterfront mansion, a garage full of exotic cars, unlimited travel to any destination where you could stay at the finest hotels.
What if your life could be another episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Ecclesiastes and shows that Solomon examined all that money could buy. He pursued everything from the grandiose to the gutter, and he found it all lacking. He found it all vanity.
Perhaps you think you could have done better and avoided the pitfalls of Solomon’s failed experiment, but Solomon is not the only man to try this pursuit — and it wasn’t lack of smarts or lack of effort that left him empty.
… But rather —[Robin Leach: “Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams!”]— it was seeking satisfaction from things that cannot satisfy.

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder
Key Text: Ephesians 5:18
Description: In today’s sermon, we come to a controversial section of Scripture for two reasons. The first is that the mention of “alcohol” opens a can of worms for many Christians and the second is that there is disagreement on what it means to be filled by the Holy Spirit and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This sermon attempts to clear up any confusion and misconceptions regarding both of these areas and clearly outline what Paul means by this verse and why he makes such a comparison.
